Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise) directs this family animated adventure starring the voice of Johnny Depp as a family pet on an adventure to discover his true self.

Rango is the story of a lonely chameleon on a journey from solitude to the vastness of the Mojave Desert. For an actor lizard who always wanted to play the hero, Rango has found an audience that actually needs one. Rango pretends to be a lawman in a thirsty town called Dirt. However, Rango soon realizes there is a difference between acting and real life and is forced to confront his identity issues and must learn the true meaning of friendship. He must complete his quest, assisted by an assortment of unique residents from Dirt including the pretty lizard “Beans”, and uncover the conspiracy behind the town’s missing water. It is the role of a lifetime, but not without its dangers!
